In this episode, recorded Nov. 11, 2011, host George Ortega describe how our lack of free will makes personal moral accountability impossible, but this fact does not threaten our personal and societal requirements for order and rule of law.
Your point is totally well taken. Fortunately I'm a lot better on some episodes than others. The thing is, though, that I've done over 300 episodes on three separate TV shows since 2002, and have not been compelled enough to try hard enough to end that bad habit. It's really a good example of how I don't have a free will. I definitely wish I cared enough about it to spend the time and energy to improve, but it just hasn't been up to me. It's too bad more people like you haven't done me the favor of noting it. I think I'd be susceptible to the kind of peer pressure that would make me work on it more.
Thanks for the review.

A minor quibble
Very interesting. I don't want to be the grammar police, but please try to forgo the use of "y'now" every ten words. After a couple thousand repetitions it begins to grate.
I have a feeling there is a minor hole for "choice" at least as regards prior programming, but I have to think it out ;')
